LUSCIOUS® Marmalade Lantana, A Sweet Addition to Your Landscape

Few plants supply as much long-lasting, reliable color as lantana. This heat and humidity lover features brightly colored bloom clusters that last through the summer and into fall. Lantana thrives in hot, dry weather and tolerates just about any well-drained soil, growing well even near the beach. And, it’s a magnet for butterflies. This versatile plant has many applications and can be used just about anywhere in garden.

Luscious® Marmalade Lantana produces vivid clusters of coral-pink flowers with tinges of orange and yellow centers that bloom abundantly and constantly day in, day out all summer long. This variety will grow to about 18-inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24-inches. Marmalade is a perfect selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. It is often used as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination, providing a mass of vibrant, cascading flowers. It’s also a good choice in beds and borders.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade and is adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions. Marmalade is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary to remove dieback.
